The McFarlands & The Garden

Walking into the garden you are guided by winding paths past early 20th century terraced rose beds and other collections of flowers that light up the garden with colour. The mystery of the garden is almost palpable as you go through hidden archways and over small streams and ponds. It is no wonder that everyone who visits has been in awe of its beauty. With over 2.5 acres of private and immaculately kept winding paths, streams and flowers, it’s an idyllic setting for many occasions.

The wonderfully traditional walled garden dates back to 1742, as does the Georgian Country house. Found along the Wild Atlantic Way, the tranquil garden is made up of a variety of rich collections of ericaceous plants, 20th century rose beds and elaborately intricate paths that radiate from the huge central redwood in the middle of the garden.

The McFarland family have lived at Dunmore for four generations and have opened their doors to many weddings, celebrations and garden parties. We are always open to all visitors looking for an occasion or simply to relax in the sanctuary of the walled garden. Dunmore dates back further then the Georgian house and beautiful walled garden that was built in 1742. The house was built on a remains of an old fort, which we believe dates back to the 14th century. You can still find remains of this forgotten fort wandering through the woodlands of Dunmore. So come make your own history in a place that has seen so much, be a part of it and enjoy. We are here to help.
